    Instructions to fix the keyboard backlight problem in Macbook Air?

    Recently I am facing this problem where the lights which use to glow under the keyboard have stopped working and I have no idea what went wrong.

    Can you please give me the instructions to follow for fixing this without going to the apple center? Please provide me the solution as soon as possible.

    The Mac Book Air has light sensors for automatically turn on and off the keyboard back-lightening.
    If you are in a bright environment,then the back-light will not work.
    Try taking your MBA to a darker environment,surely it will work.
    The lights will be turned on automatically.
    If this doesn't work,then try pressing F5 and F6.
    If still you get no result,contact Apple Costumer support.

    Dear Friend..

    That is a little minor issue which can be solved easily.
    Either the keyboard light may be damaged and because of light effects, or it can be due to the wire un-plugged from inside your MacBook.
    Check the wire first after opening the MacBook safely and if it is un-plugged, then plug-in once again.



    If the problem still continues, then the Keyboard lights would be definitely damaged.
    So, if it is some internal error, then replace your keyboard from your service center and if you don't want to replace or cant' do this, then work in a lighter place where you can see the keys.

    Also check your Keyboard cable or its socket whether it might be damaged or not.
    This can sort the issue,

    Thank you.

    Only the latest two releases have the backlit key board. Last summer, and I believe the one before was released in 2011.
